Training the Trainer for Public Speaking Success
Presented by the Bay Area local group on February 14th, 2019
Attorneys must step up to present at bar association meetings, conferences, webinars and other events. What some busy lawyers miss isn't always obvious to them: each venue is ripe for business development, if approached with marketing finesse. Presentation coaching goes a long way in helping lawyers – even those litigators used to public speaking – give a successful, revenue-generating talk. Our panel of pros will give you a host of tools, tips and techniques for guiding your attorneys to speaking stardom. Whether a keynote or moderating gig, preparation, practice, polish and the “call to action” will all be addressed, as well as the nuances of “TED-style talks,” “audio only” and video conference presentations.
- David Adams, founder of RevenueWise and developer of the AudienceFIRST presentation development program
- Marianne Fleischer, head of Fleischer Communications, director of the “Cool Under Fire” workshops and a former broadcast journalist
- Doris Pickering, CEO of Silicon Valley Speaks and a presentation and speech training specialist

5 Trends to Know When Shaping Law Firm Strategy
Presented by the Southern California local group on January 15th, 2019
The legal industry is undergoing a significant transformation: shrinking demand for law firm services, ongoing pricing pressure and a buyer’s market, further consolidation and segmentation among law firms leading to increased competition for clients and talent, a wave of partner retirements, major advances in technology and other factors. Law firms need to adapt to the evolving economy of today and the future.
This program will look at the most critical trends and issues facing law firms today and will identify and discuss how the most successful law firms – regardless of size or practice – are adapting to the new economy.
